Celebrate International Pi Day (March 14, 3.14.15) at the place named for the symbol: PI.E 3.14 Everyday Eatery

For you mathematicians, numerologists and symbologists, Saturday, March 14, 2015 is your Holy Grail, a date whose shorthand references the international symbol for that most basic of trigonometic symbols, Pi. Remember pi, 3.1415926, (Greek letter “π”), the mathematic symbol representing  the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.1415926?

The folks at PI.E 3.14 in Castle Hills love pi so much, they named their terrific casual pie emporium after it, incorporating its palindrome into the restaurant’s name and its symbol into its pies.

So it makes perfect sense that Sean Connor and Bill Stovall, two of Pie’s owners, would throw down some numbers on Pi Day. “Everybody has a day,” Stovall told me when reached by phone. “Tomorrow. 3/14/15, is our day.” To celebrate, Pie is releasing 314 biodegradable balloons tomorrow afternoon at 3:14 p.m., each balloon attached to a card for a free pizza, a free Pie Mule (a take on the classic Moscow Mule) or a free dinner for four.  There will also be $3.14 Grey Goose Pie Mules, face painting (wait till after you’ve had a couple of Mules) and live music. Then, at 9:26 pm, they’ll amp up the party with some surprise menu specials, all in celebration of the celestial alignment.

Or you could just head east a few miles and wait for one of the balloons to drop.
